A recruitment drive has been launched to build a team of staff for a new boutique house opening in the heart of Bury St Edmunds later this year.
The Northgate, formally Ounce House, in Northgate Street is currently undergoing extensive renovation in preparation for opening in the summer, when it will offer ‘refined yet relaxed dining and stylish accommodation’.
Aiming to set a new benchmark for outstanding food, drink and service, it will include a bar, dining area, private dining, meeting room facilities and nine bedrooms, while a ‘chef’s table’ will give diners the opportunity to both observe and hear from the kitchen team creating their dishes.

Philip Turner, managing director of The Chestnut Group, which owns the property, said: “Our aim is to establish The Northgate as a place that the local community is proud of and a destination of choice for the growing number of visitors to the area each year. We really want to showcase the best food and hospitality that Suffolk has to offer, whether enjoying dinner with friends or staying with us for a leisurely weekend break.”
A team of 26 new staff are being sought to provide diners and guests with a high quality, home-from-home experience.
The jobs available span all areas of the business, including restaurant and bar managers, food and beverage attendants, house keeping and reception.
“We are excited to start recruiting for The Northgate and look forward to crafting a team to ensure we deliver an exceptional experience to our guests,” said Mr Turner.
